Sam Pearsall, Founder and Producer of Roadhouse
Storytellers, will put on a one-man show as part of the
famous Bynum Front Porch storytelling series in Bynum,
NC. There will be no cover charge, but there will be a tip
bucket to benefit Bynum Front Porch. Snacks will be
served at the intermission.
Sam has told true stories and tall tales all his life, usually to
friends and family. He retired in 2013 following 35 years as
an ecologist working with conservation organizations in
Maine, Tennessee, Hawaii, and North Carolina. Beginning
with his retirement, Sam took to the stage to tell his stories.
Sam says we are all made of stories! Stories are what we
remember, what we dream of, and how we think of each
other. And every story is a whole world. As the author
John Crowley said, “with any good story, the further in
you go, the bigger it gets.”
The next Roadhouse Storytellers® event (after this one)
will feature 3 great storytellers plus Sam on April 13, 2024
at 7 PM at the Page-Walker Arts and History Center in
Cary, NC. Don’t miss it!

REVIEWS from 2023 Spring Retreat with Megan Wells.
Just got home from the NCSG Spring Retreat and WOW! What a great weekend! Wildacres is a special place- great staff, delicious meals and a breath-taking location. The workshop itself was a standout. The diversity of storytelling talent gathered under one roof was impressive, as was Megan’s coaching. The feedback she provided was as unique as the storytellers themselves, and it was easy to see the improvement in all of the stories when we shared our revised versions. Perhaps best of was the sense of community and trust that formed between the tellers. One of the best things I’ve done for my storytelling in a long while. - Andy Russell
This is to let you know that I thoroughly enjoyed Megan Wells's workshop. She is a "sought-after coach" for good reason! She is so gentle in the way she suggests ways to draw an audience more fully into one's story, without telling one WHAT to do. I could not have found a better teacher for the story I presented. - Donna Catton-Johnson
I spent last weekend at the North Carolina Storytelling Guild Spring Retreat at the Wild Acres Retreat Center in the mountains east of Asheville. Our workshop leader Megan Wells did an amazing job of creating a safe and sacred space for everyone to create and craft their stories. Thanks to Dianne Hackworth for putting it all together and to the fabulous crew at Wild Acres for making us feel so welcome. Thanks to everyone who attended, both tellers and listeners, you made this time together Magick. (That's "magic" with a "k" for the Old Magick) And of course, thanks to Megan Wells for shining her heart light so that we could see previously undiscovered places in our stories. - Janel Behm
